Dante Gebel dice que “hay algo de Dios� tras elección del Papa Francisco (Video) | PASTOR | Noticias Cristianas Evangélicas en Español, 25 May 2013 [cached]
Sin embargo, el pastor Dante, no siguió alquilando el lugar en Anaheim y se ha trasladado temporalmente a su antiguo lugar: La Catedral de Cristal. El cambio ha sido porque Favorday Church "compró su propio campus, su propio edificio, su propio templo", dice Gebel, afirmando que lo único que falta son acuerdos de permisos pero el proceso durará unos 3 meses, tiempo que pasarán realizando sus servicios en Catedral de Cristal.
Puesto que Dante ha estado temporalmente en la ahora Catedral de Cristo. Los católicos aprovecharon su figura evangélica y sus influencia para que opinara a favor del Papa Francisco, así que Gebel considera "hay algo de Dios", tras la elección Papa Francisco, y al ser preguntado si los católicos son nuestros hermanos él respondió que "si".

Dante Gebel
Dante Gebel (DG) has joined the Crystal Cathedral Ministry as pastor of the Hispanic Ministry. Dante is a well known face in Argentina and has been called the Youth Pastor of Latin America. He has done crusades around the world, filling stadiums with his messages of inspiration. Today, Juan Carlos Ortiz (JCO) introduces Dante Gebel to the Crystal Cathedral and the Hour of Power.
But the greatest thing about Dante Gebel is that he loves God with all his heart, loves people, believes in living a Holy life and rejoices in bringing the masses to Jesus Christ. And he's an Argentinean! And he comes from the same group of churches that I come from! Let us watch the Jumbotron.
VO: Dante Gebel is from Argentina, is married to Lilliana and a father of two children. He began his ministry when he was only 22 years old. He's an evangelist, author of several books and a well known showman in Argentina. His first crusade was attended by 50,000 young people in Velez Sarsfield Stadium. It is there where the press began to call him the pastor of the young people. From this moment on, his ministry and leadership with youth have not stopped growing exponentially.
Dante Gebel has done crusades that have attended up to 100,000 young people in a single night which was overwhelmed with thousands of young people that crowded to listen to Dante's messages of inspiration and holiness. Presidents and city mayors have observed with astonishment his leadership with young people and teenagers. He's a charismatic evangelist that uses all of the modern resources to reach the hearts of the youth.
He leads a television program "DNT: The Show" with a classic format of a late-night show that airs every day to the most important networks of Latin America. It also airs by radio, "The Dante Gebel Show" that is transmitted in five hundred and fifty radio transmitters in 22 countries, joining one of the greater radio stations of Latin America.
Never in the history of Latin America has such a young preacher managed to unite so many multitudes to listen to an evangelical message through his character of a reformer and a revolutionary. For Vida/Zondervan, it is a pleasure to have Dante Gebel as one of their recognized authors.
JCO: Let us welcome Dante Gebel.

Dante Gebel Crystal Cathedral Ministries : News : Press Release
GARDEN GROVE - Dante Gebel, the new pastor the Crystal Cathedral Hispanic Ministry congregation, arrived in Orange County from Buenos Aires, Argentina on Sunday, April 19, 2009. Known as "the shepherd of the young people" throughout Latin America, attracting thousands wherever he appears at evangelistic outreach events, Dante will now shepherd the current congregation and reach out to more than 850,000 Hispanics living within a ten-mile radius of the Garden Grove, CA church.
And Dante will play an integral part in that growth and in the future of the Crystal Cathedral. He is a deeply spiritual person, with passion for the multitudes and a clear vision on how to meet the needs of this new generation."
Dante, in addition to his pastoral role in his native Argentina, was a popular radio, TV and movie personality. When asked how he felt about his new role in the U.S., Dante said, "Very well and with much expectation. I am sure that it will be a church with many young people, where the families will receive a message of salvation, hope and faith. In addition, we hope that many new people will come to know the Lord and that the church experiences a remarkable growth."
In 1990, the year the Crystal Cathedral Hispanic Ministry began, Crystal Cathedral's Interim Senior Pastor Dr. Juan Carlos Ortiz (founder of the Crystal Cathedral Hispanic Ministry) remembers hearing Dante over the radio in Buenos Aires and knew instantly that this humorous and spiritual young man was headed for success.
As an actor, TV and radio host, and experienced pastor, Dante has met and exceeded Ortiz' expectations. "Dante brings his unique ministry skills to our ministry, having been reared in the new media era and with a technical staff in Buenos Aires utilizing the latest communication methods," says Ortiz.
"But what's most important is that Dante loves God, believes in a holy lifestyle, and has put his talents in the hands of God to serve only him."
In fact, many of the best-known names in Latin American ministry are already associated with us, including Dr. Juan Carlos Ortiz, Luis Palau, Lucas Leyes, David Hormachea, and now Dante Gebel! It is nothing short of miraculous to see how these relationships have been formed and strengthened. Dante is going to be a huge addition to our growing capability to plant new churches in California and beyond as an extension of the Crystal Cathedral Hispanic ministries.
Pastor Dante Gebel, a native ..., 2 July 2011 [cached]
Pastor Dante Gebel, a native of Argentina, preaches to the congregation at the Crystal Cathedral's Spanish-language service.
Pastor Dante Gebel, a native of Argentina, preaches to the congregation at the Crystal Cathedral's Spanish-language service.
As the Crystal Cathedral fights to survive its descent into Chapter 11 bankruptcy, this is its untold success story: a Spanish-language service led by a dynamic Argentine pastor, Dante Gebel, who inspires comparisons to the church's founder, Robert H.Schuller.
Since Gebel arrived two years ago, the cathedral's Hispanic Ministry has grown from no more than 300 people to 3,000, far outstripping the traditional ministry led by Schuller's daughter, Sheila Schuller Coleman.
And Gebel - an independent contractor, not a church staff member - is quick to say that he has no great attachment to the Garden Grove church and could leave at any time.
"I haven't been called to save the Crystal Cathedral, so that isn't my goal," he said in an interview in his office on the cathedral grounds. He thinks about just one thing, he said: "Preaching to the Hispanic people."
He likens the cathedral, with its soaring, light-filled vault, to a borrowed tuxedo. "I would say the same thing here as in Bolivia or Argentina," he said, "but here, I have a better suit."
But like Schuller in his prime, Gebel casts a wider net, drawing regular visitors from Bakersfield to Tijuana. He hopes to add a second service this summer, and few doubt his ability to fill it.
His goal: 10,000 people a week by January.
Like Schuller and his daughter, Gebel focuses his sermons on motivational topics, but his style is otherwise very different. His Christianity is far more mystical and overtly spiritual, his sermons deeply rooted in the Bible. It is not uncommon to see people collapse in an ecstatic trance after Gebel has laid hands on them.
Gebel, by his account, was ordained in Argentina by the Assemblies of God, one of the largest Pentecostal denominations in the world. He prefers to call his approach "charismatic" rather than Pentecostal.
Gebel's services are broadcast widely throughout the U.S. and the Spanish-speaking world on the Telemundo network.
